Welcome to The Gathering. We come together every September with one thing in mind: To learn from each other in the context of our friendships and our relationships. We're not just a conference about strategies for Christian giving, but more like a family reunion for three generations of people who want to give smarter, live stronger, and help others live a meaningful life.

In 1985, five people met for the first time in Arlington, Virginia, with a very simple agenda.

They were all engaged in Christian philanthropy and wanted to create a group of like-minded individuals to serve as a resource, a source of spiritual encouragement and a sounding board of peers. They wanted to set aside a time each year to find a safe, neutral place to relax, talk and learn – and to hopefully bring their families. And so The Gathering began.

The mission and purpose of The Gathering has now grown to include our annual conference of a few hundred people across multiple generations, as well as regional get-togethers and ministry trips throughout the year.
